How to Measure Success<br />5 Key Steps to Mapping Your Work Towards Metrics:<br />Problem: Be as specific as possible, focus on the problems you will be addressing directly (not just changing the world)<br />Strategy: Highlight the strategies that specifically address the problems (this assumes you’ve already used a process to identify your audience and goals and chosen the corresponding/appropriate tools to match)<br />Benefit: These are both tangible and intangible, and can also include things that you don’t see or expect at the beginning but develop later<br />Value: These emerge from the Strategy choices and Benefits<br />Metrics: You can identify the corresponding metrics of your tools and your actions based on what has emerged above; again some of these are basic numbers/data and others will have to be qualitative<br />
